Classes are the core of the Beverley Street Studio School education program. Weekend workshops support the intent of the classes, while allowing the student to more intensely focus on a particular medium or technique. A variety of classes are offered  throughout the year.

SCHOLARSHIPS

Scholarships are available to supplement tuition when there is an apparent financial need. Applications are available through the school office. Donations to the scholarship fund are greatly appreciated.

GIFT CERTIFICATES

Contact our school and give an artist a wonderful gift. You can either offer the total or partial fee for an art class, a workshop, or a travel study trip.

MEMBERSHIP

A one-year membership is available for $40 per person, $60 per family, or $20 per student (age 13-25). Your membership entitles you to a $30 Members’ Discount on early registration for each class/workshop, as well as other offers made throughout the year.

Members and Non-members Tuition

To encourage early enrollment we offer BSSS Members an opportunity to save on their tuition with the Members Rate. This rate is valid for those Members who sign up and pay by the “discount deadline,” which is 10 days prior to the start of workshops and 7 days prior to classes (unless otherwise stated). Members who prefer to wait until closer to the start date will pay the Non-members tuition rate. You do not have to be a member to sign up for a class or workshop – but membership has its benefits, including invitations to Members Only events, admittance to the Monday Mornings on Beverley Street lectures, print mailings and our electronic newsletter. Your membership helps support the mission of BSSS. Please consider joining today!

CHARGES and PAYMENTS

  • BSSS does not accept partial payments for classes and/or workshops.
  • MasterCard, Visa, Personal Checks and Cash are accepted for payment for all classes and workshops.
  • Consistent with other educational institutions, BSSS does not  pro-rate tuition for missed classes. Full tuition must be paid regardless of the number of classes attended.

CANCELLATION REFUNDS

Upon written request, refunds will be issued on all cancellations made one week prior to the start of a class or 10 days prior to the start of a workshop, less a $25 processing fee. Cancellations made less than one week prior to the start of a class or 10 days prior to the start of a workshop are final and non-refundable.

WEATHER

When the Augusta County Schools are closed because of inclement weather, BSSS is also closed. Please listen to your local stations. For weekend and evening workshops, lectures, and community programs, please visit the BSSS Facebook page for up-to-date cancellation notifications.

CANCELLATION BY BSSS

Classes and workshops are subject to minimum enrollment standards. If the minimum is not met, your class/workshop may be cancelled. In this event, your tuition will be fully refunded.

SCHEDULE CHANGE

You will be notified should a necessary schedule change occur.

PRE-REGISTRATION DEADLINE

If there is not sufficient registration, a class may be cancelled one week prior to start, and a workshop ten days prior to start. This policy is to allow instructors ample time to plan and prepare for upcoming classes/workshops. Registration taken within one week of a class or within ten days of a workshop will not be eligible for the member discount rate.
